What others are saying about The Fall of Darwin’s Last Icon: and the Failure of the Cartesian-Darwinian Narrative
Why do you believe what you believe about the origins of mankind and the universe? What determined your view of reality? Is it possible that most contemporary men and women in the so-called “developed world” are victims of a Grand Deception that distorts their view of reality?
These questions are answered in this remarkable book, which demonstrates that the leaders of western secular society and even many Church leaders have fallen under the spell of the “Cartesian-Darwinian Narrative.” This “Narrative” is a false view of reality that arose in seventeenth century Europe and achieved global dominance following the publication of Darwin’s The Origin of Species (1859). For more than a century, public education and even many religious institutions have indoctrinated students into this false view of reality.
The author retraces the fascinating history of the Narrative through the domains of philosophy, theology, natural science, and history. One of the most powerful claims of the Cartesian-Darwinian Narrative concerns human evolution—the last remaining Darwinian icon. Yet, in the span of three chapters, the author dismantles more than 100 years of alleged “missing links” between apes and humans. He also takes readers on a personal journey that leads non-believers to the foot of the Cross and challenges believers—especially Christian intellectuals—to proclaim the fullness of the truth about origins, as revealed by God and taught by Jesus Christ, who is Truth itself.
I highly recommend this book and believe it is one of the most important and insightful books on origins ever written.

“The material in The Fall of Darwin’s Last Icon was one of the key resources used in the production of the DVD Series Foundations Restored: A Catholic Perspective on Origins. In this book, the author chronicles the fascinating history of an attack on truth, centuries in the making, called “the Cartesian-Darwinian Narrative.” In the process, he advances the discussion about origins and provides new insight, not seen in Catholic circles before, regarding the relationship between Cartesian philosophy and Darwinism, and how the combined errors shaped modern society. I consider this a must read for any Catholic concerned about the state of the Church and for anyone who wants to understand how the societal destruction seen everywhere came about.”
